The Nigerian bourse began publishing the NSE 30 Index in February 2009 with index values available from January 1, 2007. On July 1, 2008, the NSE developed four sectoral indices with a base value of 1,000 points, designed to provide investable benchmarks to capture the performance of specific sectors. The Insurance and Consumer Goods Indices are composed of the top fifteen most capitalized and liquid companies in their specific sector. The Banking and Industrial Goods Indices are composed of the top ten most capitalized and liquid companies in their respective sectors, while the Oil & Gas Index is made up of the top seven most capitalized and liquid companies in the sector.

In July 2012, the Nigerian bourse launched The NSE Lotus Islamic Index (NSE LII) which consists of companies whose business practices are in conformity with Shari’ah Investment Principles, with the aim of increasing the breadth of the market and creating an important benchmark for investments as the alternative ethical and noninterest investment space widened. The companies that appear on the Islamic Index have been thoroughly screened by Lotus Capital Halal Investment, in accordance with a methodology approved by an internationally recognized Shari’ah Advisory Board comprising of renowned Islamic scholars.

The NSE in collaboration with Afrinvest Securities Limited launched the NSE-Afrinvest Banking Value Index and NSE-Afrinvest High Dividend Yield Index in January 2019. They were designed in response to requests for applicable benchmarks for measuring value in banking stocks and high dividend stocks listed on the Exchange. In March 2019, NSE also collaborated with Meristem Securities Limited, to launch the NSE-Meristem Growth Index and NSE-Meristem Value Index. These indices provide a benchmark for the market to gauge the performances of value stocks and growth stocks listed on the Exchange.
